War memorials do more harm than good.

Danielle
JustCallMeTarzan

Greetings to my opponent and welcome to Round 2 -- Good luck! For the purpose of this debate, a war memorial will be defined as a building, monument, statue or other edifice to celebrate a war or victory, or (predominating in modern times) to commemorate those who died or were injured in war (Source: Wikipedia). If my opponent disagrees with the definition, I ask that he provide another relavent to the resolution as soon as possible. So without further ado (or is it adieu?), let's begin!...

If a Single God Exists and Is Responsible For Creating Our World, This God Is a Jerk

schoolglutton
midgetjoe

~~~ My Main Argument ~~~ Claim: If a Single God Exists and Is Responsible For Creating Our World, This God Is a Jerk God is defined here as an infallible, all knowing, and all powerful being responsible for the creation of all that is. Somehow this God has managed to always exist and predate all that has ever been. Jerk is defined here as a being whose behavior is hurtful, self-centered, or particularly abrasive. My evidence is that God deposited some pretty nasty genetic diseases and...

The existence of God

DiablosChaosBroker
Puck

I affirm that God exists. "The complexity of our planet points to a deliberate Designer who not only created our universe, but sustains it today."(1) The Earth...its size is perfect. The size of the Earth and its corresponding gravity holds an atmosphere of mostly nitrogen and oxygen gases, only extending to about 50 miles of Earth's surface. "It is at a perfect distance from the Sun; not too hot, not too cold."(2) It has the perfect gravity without the difficulty of heavy gravity and lo...

Affirmative Action is Right and Necessary

early american settlers were racist. they captured people in africa, forced them to work in america under ridiculous conditions, then freed them and left them homeless; many families were broken up to begin with, so a lot of households had no nuclear fmaily at its core. once freed, black people had a hard time finding work due to discrimination. many found blue collar jobs as time went on and endured harsh work conditions because they had no other choice. they worked for low wages; this caus...

Sex Education should be taught in public schools.

BeatTheDevil89
LakevilleNorthJT

I think that the title basically speaks for itself as well as the definitions. So on with my opening. Contentions: I. A bias free education is the right of every child, including sex education especially since virtually 100% of them will use it, even in marriage. II. To not teach sex education would be harmful to students III. The facts should be taught in school, morals should be taught at home because morals differ from family to family....

My presidential candidate of choice MUST believe in evolution.

artC
advidiun

When choosing a candidate to support, I first discard the ones who don't believe in evolution. If you believe the universe was created six thousand years ago, I can not possibly take you seriously. I think it's important to vote for someone who believes AT LEAST in evolution. How can we have someone lead our country in a fair, logical and reasonable mannor when they don't use logic to come to a reasonable conclusion on the origin of our world? I am not debating about a belief in god or th...

The US should make new funds for the Water For The Poor Act to solve for the African water crisis.

Rousseau
tjzimmer

300 millions are without water in Sub-Saharan Africa, and the problem is only growing worse. We need to fully fund the Water For The Poor Act in order to solve. It was enacted in 05, but has only been funded 10 million for regions in Africa. It needs 200 milion. Many credible literature authors beleive it can solve, and it solves for: -Water conflicts -Disease -And America's lack of Soft Power....

The Big Bang Theory rationally disproves God

Evan_MacIan
Korezaan

I was reading a debate in which my opponent stated that the Big Bang theory rationally disproves God, and I wanted to get a little explanation for that. So, I think Korezaan should prove the point that the Big Bang Theory rationally disproves God, which I just don't get. Before I let him get started, I'd just like to say a few things. I believe the Big Bang Theory is basically correct. I believe Creationism is basically incorrect. I read Genesis at the allegorical level, as do most of t...
